3.4.2. Exporting, Importing, Duplicating, Renaming, and Deleting Hierarchies in the Intel® FPGA PTC

To export, import, duplicate, rename, and delete design hierarchies in the Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator (PTC) using the Hierarchy Manager, follow these steps:
  1. Click View > Hierarchy Manager to display the Hierarchy Manager if not already displayed.
  2. For any hierarchy in Hierarchy Manager, perform any of the following:
    • To duplicate a hierarchy, right-click the hierarchy and select Duplicate.
    • To export the hierarchy data to a .ptc file, select a hierarchy and click the Export button. Exporting a hierarchy does not export complete design data, only the selected hierarchy and a minimum set of device-selection fields to allow the exported instance to be opened properly on its own in the PTC.
    • To import hierarchy data from a .ptc file, click the Import button. Importing prepends the imported file name to any imported instance paths.
    • To rename a hierarchy, click the Rename button. The new hierarchy name can include the pipe character (|) to create new levels of hierarchy.
    • To delete a selected hierarchy, click the Delete button. Delete operations cannot be undone, so the PTC prompts you to confirm the delete operation.
    • You can also modify the design hierarchy using the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands in the Hierarchy Manager.
